Battleship Galaxies is a space combat miniatures board game that is a distant cousin to the original Battleship game. The two opposing forces represented in the game, the human Intergalactic Space Navy and the alien Wretcheridians, are represented by 20 highly-detailed starship miniatures. There are figures for several different ship types and each has an individual reference card that defines the characteristics of that ship (e.g. weapons, movement, shields). The game is played on a star field hex board.The game is scenario driven and each scenario will define the goal of the game as well as initial board set-up. Each turn, players have a certain number of energy points that can be spent to perform actions, such as movement or fire. Combat is resolved by rolling special dice, a ten-sided die with letters and an eight-sided die with numbers. The resulting letter-number combination is compared to the target ships reference card to determine the result. Hits on a ship are indicated by placing colored pegs in the figures base.Here's what comes in the box:2 Gameboards 20 Plastic ships with bases and stands 24 Ship cards 2 Screens with side supports 2 Coordinate dice 35 Blue pegs 40 Red pegs 2 Energy boards and markers 72 Tactic cards 8 Obstacle tiles 8 Discovery tiles Victory Point tile Rules 2 Quick-reference cards 48 page Graphic Novel - BoardGameGeek
